Members of the Senate Homeland Security Committee are making
last minute preparations for a hearing into election
irregularities. On Tuesday, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) sat down with
One America News to discuss the importance of the hearing.
“I mean, we’ve got to first figure out what went on in this
last election and then we’ve got to figure out what we’re gonna
do to make sure it never happens again in terms of potential fraud
and just the irregularities,” stated the Missouri Republican.
Chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee Ron Johnson
announced the hearing last week to restore America’s confidence
in our election process. Johnson said there’s always a degree of
election fraud in American elections, but it’s never enough to
sway the results.
However, the chairmen went on to note that President Trump’s
campaign has brought up several issues regarding election integrity
that need to be addressed promptly.

“We can’t see states like Arizona and Georgia and
Pennsylvania stopping the vote counts in the middle of the vote,
and not having eyes on both ballots, not allowing poll watchers
from both parties to be present throughout the counting,” Hawley
stated. “I mean, this has to change…we’ve got to make sure
that these procedures are fixed, so that we can have confidence
going forward in our elections.”
Several former top officials are expected to testify, including
former head of the Cybersecurity
and Infrastructure Security Agency Christopher Krebs.
Additionally, former Solicitor General and independent council Ken
Starr is set to testify in his personal capacity.
Lawmakers are scheduled to begin the hearing Wednesday.
